    Yes, you can install PCI video card. Integrated video should be automatically disabled.

    Like TapKep said, you can install the PCI graphics card and it will work. If you are currently using the onboard graphics though, it may not automatically disable itself. You may have to go into the bios and disable it manually. I would disable it just to eliminate any further issues between the 2 graphics adapters.
